The Council of Europe criticizes Germany for a lack of anti-corruption efforts. Among other things, the financial interests of ministers should be made clearer.

According to experts from the Council of Europe, Germany is not doing enough to fight corruption. According to a report presented in Strasbourg, only one of fourteen recommendations made by the anti-corruption body Greco in 2020 has been implemented satisfactorily.

For example, the committee recommended making legislative processes more transparent and making the influence of lobbyists clearer. It was said that this had not been implemented. It is also regrettable that there are still no stricter rules for politicians moving to the private sector, for example longer waiting periods. More transparency with regard to the financial interests of the federal ministers is also desirable.

There was praise for the introduction of the lobby register in the Bundestag, but there should be more information about the purpose of contacts with lobbyists.
